We won't shake our heads at aggressive enduro fiends, in fact, we find some of our best days take place riding enduro with our crew, but there's something to be said for all-mountain and trail days with your friends, weaving through dense pine forests, climbing shady switchbacks, and snacking on gummy bears and beef jerky on a strategically placed log that oversees a winding canyon below. For those of us whose rides might take us beyond the beaten enduro path and into the seldom rolled singletrack, there's the Ibis Mojo 3 Carbon NX Complete Mountain Bike. The Mojo 3 captures a sweet spot in trail bikes, with more aggressive descending prowess than the quick rolling Ripley, and a pedal platform to crush the beefy HD4, landing us with the right amount of get-up-and-go to power up to the top of the trail, and the slack and plush feel we want for gobbling up rock gardens when we point it back downhill. The Mojo 3's spirited kick starts with the shock tune and DW-Link suspension. Ibis claims it tuned the shock so its initial stroke rides on the "plush" side, but our firsthand experience with the bike tells us that generous small bump compliance doesn't keep it from feeling firm off the top. It's responsive and changes direction quickly while navigating switchbacks at climbing speeds, and the anti-squat pedaling platform maintains past the sag point. The shock's tune doesn't require a high damper handicap, a fact that Ibis credits to the shock rate and DW-Link's steady pedaling platform. Since it naturally reduces bob without needing a damper handicap from the shock, DW-Link's ramp-up stays smooth throughout its suspension arc. It also suffers less heat build-up than heavily dampened models, so its ramp feel isn't significantly affected during hard, fast descents where the shock is working overtime. It wasn't specifically built as a park bike, but spending a few minutes on it makes it obvious that the Mojo 3 is fully capable of getting rowdy. Ibis describes the shoc...

The pika is a close relative of the rabbits and hares, with two upper incisors on each side of the jaw, one behind the other. Being rock-gray in color, pikas are seldom seen until their shrill, metallic call reveals their presence.
